I just got over spending a bit of time researching whether to do Cat5e or Cat6 (doing Cat6) and in that research, I saw there was lots of opinion and debate for RG6 - copper clad steel vs solid copper. Ugh, more research.
If there is already a good thread in AVS, a pointer would be great.
Is it necessary to spend the extra $'s on the solid copper? The biggest concern I have is with distances. I saw there are limits to how far a DirecTv control box can be from the LNB's before you might have too much voltage drop off. Most of my runs will be within 50' from control box to Distribution hub. But, it is another 50' from distribution hub to dish.
When on monoprice (where I had planned to buy wire), they don't even carry solid. I know I can get it elsewhere but if monoprice isn't selling it, my guess is its need is rare?
Thanks in advance!
